As 2009 comes to a close we take a look back at some of the gaming highlights that the PlayStation 3 has had this year. With so many games released (and so many of them great games), it's hard to pick just a few, but here are my personal favorites anyway:
Demon's Soul – The hardcore gamers' dream. The game is so hard that you'll either love it (and possibly think it's the best game ever made) or hate it. So what makes it so hard? Well, if you die (and it's extremely easy to die) then you have to go all the way back to the beginning of the level. Each level can take around 40 minutes to complete, and there's an ultra tough boss at the end of each one. Also, there's no pause button so you can not take a break at any time.
Street Fighter 4 – This is the game that bought arcade gaming back to the masses. It's been too long since the last Street Fighter game was released, and the world was starting to forget what an amazing series it is.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – This game was titled as 'the largest release in entertainment history' and it certainly did not disappoint. With thousands of thousands of players competing online already, a campaign mode that is equal to any other single player game out there, and the now-legendary Spec Ops mode that's as good as anything I've ever experienced in a video game, Modern Warfare 2 is right up there with the best games of 2009.
